Re: what to buy next

Our normal troops when used properly do really well with volume of fire, same with our drones. If you don't like commanders do you feel the same about crisis suits? Flamer suits seem to be extremely popular when paired with stealths and a beacon. I like our pathfinders for a markerlight and extra sp...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

I definitely agree with your point about ITC missions and would prefer to play them any chance I can. I would definitely tailor my list more towards those by taking drones with commanders. Some tournaments will be running straight rule book though so I think it's something to be mindful of and buil...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

ITC missions have KP as power level not one point per unit and in general I feel this and the change so that whoever finishes deployment first gets +1 to roll off who gets first turn to be very good smart changes without going overboard. Still emphasizes drops but doesn't make it the only thing.

That's right so you have 2 shots per rig with a 67% hit chance per shot. T


BS4+ re-rolling 1s isn't the same of BS3+

Re: 2000pts Competitive Hammerheads

Hammerheads are okish and CAN do work but really it's just not worth it in a tournament setting. They aren't nearly reliable enough. Most everything in your list is made of good reliable units except the tidewall pieces and hammerheads. Just a few small tweaks and you're good to go. Our great units ...

Breachers are very good but seriously, how often do your breachers get shot by ap-2 weapons? :-? Just take two gun drones and call it a day.

Re: 750 points patrol army

Too many big units of things in the 750 in my opinion. Drop the drone with the breachers and the markerlight on the 'ui. Not very likely that you'll get hit with ap -2 stuff to make it worth it and you don't want the 'ui shooting anything other than his sweet blaster. Also, drop the seekers on the f...

Re: Firesight Marksman Vs Pathfinders.

Firesight is a character too so he can't be targeted in the exact same way as the Fireblade so there goes that argument. Though the extra BS and wounds is nice but that price though.

Re: First list after a long time away

Ok so I looked at what I had and what you said I do have another hammer head so if I drop a unit of XV9's, the technical drones and the ethereal I can get longatrike and a ghostkeel with 12 pts to spare I'd probably just give 1 Pathfinder in each time an ion rifle. The only reason I'm using the hea...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

Yeah they certainly could do that though I'd love to see them managing proper balancing without such artificial limitations. tThey could also do something like how relics get more CP heavy the more you have. They could say for every squad of the same type over 2, add additional costs to that new sq...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

I wish they’d add a unit specific limit ala warmachine. It would resolve all spam issues and would also incentivize larger unit sizes in certain circumstances. I'm not sure I understand what this means. Something like "Not more than 25% of your total units in your list may consist of these uni...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

All those advantages are nice but don't mean anything if we can't take wounds off of a Character reliably. ;) What I tried to say before is that I don't think Sniper weapons are well done for anybody except for maybe Skitarii since those don't have to rely on 6s to deal some damage. Agreed big time.

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

Gotten the first package today :) Nothing that will not always be present in any army and lots of toys. Read up some on the codex. So there seem to be agreement the special forces is a no-go :( The question then would shift to, how insane could one make a 1000 point list? Still somewhat set on a pu...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

I feel like all Sniper should have at least AP-2 honestly. Gambling on a 6 is always annoying and especially unfitting for sniper. The Mortal wound on 6s could stay as special bonus for some but it shouldn't be the main mechanic to deal damage with. I feel like their problem with Sniper is that the...
